I thought I'd share a picture of the bow loop dryer DH made me awhile back. After finding dowels with drying loops propped up all over the house (and rolling off onto the floor), he made me this dowel holder out of pvc pipe. It's notched for a 1" dowel, but will hold smaller widths also and holds enough loops for a big bow and extras in case of breakage. Very sturdy and doesn't knock over easily!
Gotta love DH!!
Thanks for looking!
Sorry it's the same picture - not sure why it posted twice!
It's just one of those gremlins while the upgrades are going on!
great idea, and what a sweet pie husband
Good hubby..good hubby!!!! Nice idea.
Great idea! I will have to remember that for when I do bows.
Haha now THAT's funny, me doing bows!! I can't even ICE a dang cake w/o stressing over it!!!
That is a fantastic idea...I've gotta try that! Thanks for sharing.
I do that but hang the pvc between two dining room chairs (the backs of my chairs have rails). I have found that it helps to dust the pvc with cornstarch, as sometimes the fondant/gp wants to stick to it.
LOL Yeah, I think I'll keep him!
Ok send it here
my address is....
Seriously, have you silly girls never played with PVC pipe before? OMG, you can create all kinds of drying racks...for bow loops, sugar flowers, whatever. You just buy yourself some 1" PVC pipe, 1" elbow or 3-way connectors, and a PVC pipe cutter (if you don't have a bandsaw or manual saw to use to cut it). Just don't use PVC glue so you can take apart your creations and make new ones as your needs require.
PVC pipe is your friend!!
pvc = friend LOL
It's just like tinkertoys! We used to own a hardware store & gave the rugrat all kinds of pvc & couplings to keep him occupied behind the counter when we were working!
Wow wonderful idea! He's really creative.
